As an Economics student, I’m a sucker for strange mathematical formulas that oddly but accurately explain real world occurrences.
One of the most intriguing things I’ve seen is a power law called The Lindy Effect. It is observable everywhere, from marriages to individual behaviour to human civilisations… and fabrics!
The Lindy Effect:
The longer something has existed, the longer it is likely to continue existing.
Even though modern technology has churned out dozens of new and novel synthetic fabrics, the oldest natural fabrics remain irreplaceable – wool, cotton, linen, cashmere and silk.
Each of these fabrics has a unique combination of attributes which cannot be precisely replicated. They are akin to the Old Guard of the fabric world, and will continue to be around for a long time.
Linen – The World’s Strongest Natural Fibre
Chief amongst the Old Guard is an exceptionally strong and durable fabric called linen. It is absorbent, and highly resistant to damage from stretching or abrasion.
Naturally, the best way to leverage the physical toughness of linen is to utilise it for heavy-duty and protection purposes.
